The crystal structure of the newly synthesized complex, trans-aqua-bis(benzylamino)-bis(5,5-dimethylhydantoinato) copper(II) was determined by X-Ray single crystal data. The thermal analyses, FT-IR and magnetic susceptibility data are also presented. The complex crystallizes in the monoclinic system, space group C2. The complex features a distorted square pyramidal [CuN4O] coordination with 5,5-dimethylhydantoinato, benzylamine and water ligands. The 5,5-dimethylhydantoinato anion is bonded to the copper(II) ion via its deprotonated N atom in the 3-position.
